Extended Summary

Tasha is in shock following her discovery of the shrine – everything her friends warned her against The Believers is true! Tasha makes a quick exit from the tent as she hears Mumma Rose and Jonah approaching. Jonah reassures Mumma Rose that Tasha’s friends had no influence on her at Flynn’s funeral – they are all still convinced that she is now one of The Believers. Tasha can’t believe what she is hearing and becomes even more determined to escape – but how? Tasha helps the others decorate the Farm for their Moon Party – her mind a million miles away formulating a plan of escape. She sneaks back into Mumma Rose’s tent to retrieve her mobile phone she spotted earlier – but her hopes are crushed when she discovers her mobile battery is dead. Tasha’s every attempt to escape has failed and now her distress begins to show.

Tasha is stunned when she overhears Jonah asking Mumma Rose how long she plans to keep Rebecca captive. She listens carefully to determine Rebecca’s whereabouts and later in the night, when the Moon Party is in full swing, Tasha sneaks off in search of Rebecca. Tasha calls out and is stunned to hear Rebecca calling back. As she rounds the corner she discovers Rebecca…chained to a tree. There is a sense of urgency as Tasha picks up a rock and starts belting the lock. Rebecca pleads with her to hurry. Just as the lock breaks…Jonah appears. Sprung! Before Tasha has any chance to reason, Mumma Rose arrives, ordering Jonah to lock her up at once. Tasha screams as she is dragged away – what is going to happen to Tasha?

Helpman explains to her he will be monitoring her skills – Rachel looks up to this man and wants to impress. She finishes her rounds with her patients and Helpman sings her praises but Rachel can’t help but feel there is something unusual in Helpman’s response and when questioned how far she will go to progress her career, Rachel is unnerved by what is being implied…is he trying to crack on to her?
